Homecoming Clothing Schedule Posted at HPHS

I apologize for the quality of this phone photo. Who will apologize for the quality of the poster?

It’s Homecoming Week at Highland Park High School, and posters have been put up that inform students what to wear on each day.

Today: “Prep Day (Country Club)” — The easy joke would be “How is this different from any other day?” But, based on my experience, that joke applies to another day. Keep reading.

Tuesday: — I can’t tell what kids are supposed to do tomorrow. Note to the creators of this poster: Orange type on a pink background is a horrible design strategy.

Wednesday: “Twin Day” — It cracks me up that this isn’t “Twins Day.” You can’t be a singular twin, can you?

Thursday: “Western Day” — The image of a cowboy boot helped me decipher that orange type.

Friday: “Spirit Day” — This is where the aforementioned joke applies. I interpret “Spirit Day” as a day to wear Scots merchandise. I lack the proper perspective, having attended a high school with no sports teams, but I’ve noticed that 75 percent of the kids I see while serving in the cafeteria are showing Scots spirit on a typical day. And I rarely see the same T-shirt twice. Makes you wonder how many different pieces of Scots merch get produced in a given year.

    Based on the picture, Tuesday could be Socks and Shoes day, as in no flip-flops.

    1988 called and they’d like their poster back.

    The poster was probably made and hung by members of their Student Council or some other type of student organization, so y’all are picking on teenagers. That’s not very nice, now is it?

    Tuesday is probably crazy socks day, we had that same theme often for spirit week at my high school.

    Um, actually, kids, Tuesday IS 80’s day. Let ’em have their fun. Nothing harmful here.

    What you should really check out is the senior line up of dress up days. Today the seniors had gender switch day!

    Kids these days are technical wizards compared to adults; if they made that poster it must be some kind of hipster-style humor…..so terrible it’s good.
